Thank you all for your replies first and foremost.
I had my monthly appointment this morning. When i went to the pharmacy to fill one of the prescript
ions, i didn't recognize the new guy. But turns out his picture is on the wall as the head/main pharmicist. (The "lecture lady" is now the second in command).
Anyway, i walked up gave him my hydrocodone script
(the main one isn't due until the 9th). He went on the computer for a bit then asked me if the prescript
ion was for break through pain. I said yes. (The lady never asked me this, just gave me the lecture). So like for a hot minute i am thinking in my head, wow maybe this guy understands chronic pain.
Well then after that, he asks me, "how often do you take this?"
Well without thinking AND with my back throbbing in pain, i said to him - 'why are you asking me this' ?
*Sorry, i was in major pain & had a sports massage 2 days earlier that helped a bit but the muscles locked up last night and this morning So i was in a crappy mood.
Well, he replied - "Because I'm your pharmacist and I need to know".
Instead of sayin, - Well, why don't you read the f'ing script
I actually took a breath and said - "I take it once a day but try not to take it unless it's absolutely necessary ".
I had to go back later to pick it up. As i was thinking about
this, i realized that i may be coming across as a bit#h, especially since my back and neck were f'n killing me and he doesn't know this. I just seem really mean.
So when i went back to pick up the hydrocodone medication, i did say to him, I'm sorry for being so short with you. I just really don't feel good today. He was actually nice , looked at me and said, no problem (in a nice way).
Not sure what will happen next month , or what will happen when i fill my other script
on the 9th but i hope it gets better.
Gotta thank you all for the positive feedback , ideas and talking about
what you all have been through. It seriously helps more than you know.
Also to Rjbeck, i also take methadone as the main pain medication so i appreciate you saying that you take this also. I've had a bad experience with oxycodone as the main one but methadone and hydrocodone as break through pain relief is really working for me.
